Meanwhile, President Duterte welcomes the complaint filed against him last week. He said that such a move by his opponents is part of a democratic process. The President also said that a case will likely be filed against him as well before the International Criminal Court

The impeachment complaint was filed by Rep. Gary Alejano of the Magdalo Party List. He cited the following grounds: 1) engaging in bribery 2) betrayal of public trust 3) graft and corruption 4) other high crimes.

Malacanang dismissed the complaint as part of a destabilization plot against the Duterte government. The President’s allies in the House of Representatives said that the move will not prosper.

A lot of cheating videos circulate online. There are various situations where cheaters are caught as they do their business. While some of them are caught having cuddling moments with their mistresses, people often go crazy when it comes to those situations where cheating couples are caught in the act doing intimate activities with each other.

This is the exact same thing that this viral video shows when it immediately dominated social media. This is not a typical caught-in-the-act cheating moment because these traitors were seen banging each other inside a car! 

This may be one of the most painful moments for the wife of the man featured in the video.

They tried to remain calm although another woman can be heard screaming. Due to tremendous embarrassment, the mistress only chose to hide her face from the camera. She cannot move as she remained half-naked although several other men were surrounding her.

DepEd to Lowers Minimum Age Requirement To 15 Years Old!

Due to financial difficulties, many students are forced to apply for certain jobs to sustain their financial needs while going to school. The number of students working for summer jobs is continuously growing every year.

Summer job workers are expected to double their number as the Department of Education recently lowered the minimum age requirement for summer job applicants to 15 years old effective this year.

DepEd released Republic Act No. 9547 which expands and strengthens the coverage of R.A. No. 7323 or the Special Program For Employment of Students. It has amended certain provisions including the reduction of minimum age requirement for those students who wish to apply for a summer job. 

Through R.A No. 9547, “poor but deserving students fifteen (15) years of age but not more than twenty-five (25) years old” can be considered employees of companies. This has been a major change as companies were formerly allowed to only accept applicants age 18 years old and above.

Aside from the age requirement, R.A 9547 also amended the following provisions on salary, application period and credentials of the applicants:

“paying them salary or wage not lower than the minimum wage for private employers and the applicable hiring rate for the national and local government agencies”

“shall only be employed during summer and/or Christmas vacation”

“that students employed in acitivities related to their course may earn equivalent academic credit as may be determined by the appropriate government agencies”

The DepEd officials also pointed out their aim is to ensure that students are still learning while earning on their vacation periods.

“We would like to make sure that they are doing great with their grades. We will look at their family income. Mayroon tayong mga hinahanap na talagang mas nangangailangan so napakagandang pagkakataon po sa ating mga mag-aaral na habang summer, hindi lamang po sila kumikita ay nagkakaroon pa po ng pagkakataong matuto, “ DepEd Spokesman Asec. Tomisito Umali said in a press conference.

ABs-CBN News’ Jasmin Romero also reported that applicants may wish to apply for a job in fastfood chains, restaurants and even in local and national government agencies.  

The DepEd secretary, Sec. Leonor Briones claimed that companies may also benefit from these amendments as they may choose their desired employees immediately. They may discover new talents, skills, and personalities who may then be hired as regular employees of their establishments.

“Namimili sila eh. Makakapili sila sino ang gusto nila. So they don’t have to go through the years na wala-wala, ang tagal-tagal ng proseso. So you teach them the basic things, no necessarily those which are memorized only,” Sec. Briones said.

Meanwhile, the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) earlier announced that more than 200,000 jobs are available in the country for Senior High School students who aspire to graduate from their academic tracks.

Filipinos Are Hypocrites When It Comes to Standards of Beauty?

In today’s age of technology and social media, some people have been branded “narcissists” or “self-centered” as selfies have become almost a norm in our newsfeeds. People are now also more willing to express their thoughts, sentiments, opinions, and whatnot through their own statuses and pictures. 

Facebook user Giselle Mabalot posted two pictures and claimed that people, Filipinos especially, are very hypocritical when it comes to their own standards of beauty. 

On her post are two different shots of girls. The left side featured an otherwise normal-looking girl with ordinary features but had no bra on, while the picture on the right showed a busty girl with a more attractive appearance. She appears to have no bra on as well.

Mabalot said that the girl on the left side was called a “fame wh**e” while the girl on the right side was highly complimented by Filipinos and had lots of likes, comments, and shares on Facebook.

Mabalot also hashtagged her post with “#hypocrites” and “#crabmentality.” She implied that just because the girl on the right side (the one wearing a white camisole) looked more attractive, people were quick to hit the “like button.”

Meanwhile, the girl on the right (the one wearing an orange shirt) was tagged as a “fame wh**” because she was not that attractive anyway—at least, that’s what Mabalot implied. 

Many netizens agreed with Mabalot’s view and said that what she posted about the girls and Filipinos’ perceptions of beauty were “true.” 

Here are some of their thoughts on the issue: 

Mark Jordan Cabural: “I don’t necessarily believe that labeling should ever be used, but if all these girls do is post on social media with nothing else going for them in their lives, then I believe they technically are just doing it for the fame.”

“I believe that all people are beautiful and you should feel free to express your body, but I don’t believe that its justifiable for her to only post pictures for likes haha” 

Lucienne Rosales: “Nothing wrong with showing your tits. It’s disturbing how the girl in the left receives death threats and insults, people are so miserable really”

This Boy’s English Translations Will Make You Laugh!

Have you ever been in a situation wherein you couldn’t seem to translate a seemingly simple Filipino word into English?

Well, don’t worry, because you’re not alone when it comes to that.  

Most people generally assume that it’s easy to translate certain words from one language to another. 

Particularly in countries like the Philippines where citizens are expected to speak at least two languages, people assume that the ability to switch almost flawlessly from Filipino to English is something that comes naturally. 

What others don’t realize is that language is actually more tricky than what we all might like to think. Due to cultural and economic differences, sometimes, it’s pretty clear that certain words, no matter how simple they may seem, can yield different meanings in other languages. 

We also have to take note that the environment has something to do with how people perceive language. The media too has a hand in whatever words we happen to have in our daily vocabulary. 

But enough of all the discussions about how complicated language can be. Let’s move on to the lighter side of things for now. 

Recently, a clip of a boy from the Philippines giving out English translations for certain Filipino words has gone viral online.

Her Brother Surprised Her After Doing This!

Most of the time, people believe that sisters and brothers are one of the most special gifts God can give to anyone. Aside from being roommates, siblings are the best company and best buddies to keep. There is just no greater love than what these precious real-life friends can express.

These thoughts are applicable to these precious siblings featured in an article published by the inspirational site, Little Things. This story can really be considered as #SiblingGoals.

A teenage girl from Gilbert, Arizona found herself in shock when her two brothers threw a surprise for her. She did not expect what was waiting for her that day.

John and Elizabeth have another brother named Shane. Shane is a soldier who was assigned in Italy for three years. Due to the nature of his job, he was kept from seeing Elizabeth for a long time. It had been a hard time for both of them as they were reported to be really close to each other. 

When it was the time for Shane to return home, he asked for John’s help to pull off a surprise for Elizabeth. Yes! Shane’s homecoming was kept as a secret from Elizabeth with John’s help. That is why when Shane returned at their home, it seemed like Elizabeth got the surprise of her life.

John decided to record the moment Elizabeth will meet her older brother again. The video below showed how Elizabeth reacted when Shane approached her. 

Just as when she thought it was John who entered their house, she did not expect that she was about to see someone she missed terribly.

A Priest Is Planning on Making Cory as Saint?

In our country where the separation of the Church and State is still largely debatable, and the people’s beliefs and values are heavily influenced by the Roman Catholic religion, it is not a surprise that some would want to beatify a political figure. 

In an interview with Joanna Rae Ramirez, lifestyle editor of The Philippine Star, Fr. Catalino Arevalo revealed that he is planning to start the process of the late president’s ordainment into sainthood. He believes that Cory has the qualities and attributes fit for a saint

Fr. Arevalo talked about Cory’s life and suffering she had to undergo, particularly the loss of her husband, the political destabilization during her time as President, and ultimately her fight with colon cancer which led to her death. 

Fr. Arevalo commended how she battled all of this out without complaining, instead, choosing to live a life of prayer. According to the priest, this just goes to show that she has an outstanding strength of character and tremendous levels of perseverance

“From what I know of Tita Cory, I see no difficulty whatsoever and I think that we should start thinking of the possibility of starting a process ourselves.” Fr. Arevalo stated. 

To further prove his point, he talked about how Cory was inspired by St. Francis of Assisi’s life. St. Francis, one of the many martyrs of the Catholic Church, lived a modest and simple life despite all the suffering he endured. 

He related that, when Cory went down from her Presidential post, she went to Assisi, and was moved by St. Francis’ life. She then returned to her hotel, went down on her knees, and prayed to the Lord, saying that she will not complain if suffering comes into her life. 

In the Catholic church, a person can only be nominated for sainthood if she has passed away at least 6 years prior to the time of nomination. This makes Cory eligible since she died in 2009
